Why do I keep getting switched to Reward Zone

Is anybody else having this problem? It is only on the Tech Advisor website that I am getting it, all other websites behave normally. I will be part way through reading a post and then it will switch and make me an offer that I immediately refuse. Samsung tablet if that is relevant.

I have just logged on to see if anyone had replied to my post when, love and behold, it happened again. nationalconsumerscentre.co.uk appears to be the offending website. Any clues anybody as it is only this website that it is affecting.

Load "Adblock plus" It allows a few through though!

Maybe give adw cleaner a run to see if it finds any problems.

I have now installed adblock plus, though I an reluctant to use an ad blocker as the ads pay for the site. Can't put up with being switched to another site when I am in the middle of reading something.

As long as everything is working the way you want it.

You can only put up with so much.

Don't know which browser you are using, but if Firefox install This extension it gives you a button to disable JavaScript site by site. You will need to enable it before posting but if you forget just enable it then refresh page.

Matt - I'm using Chrome on an Android tablet. Adblock plus seems to have done the trick for me.

Despite Adblock plus I was just answering another thread when I answered the popular survey on adblock erstwhile and immediately got transferred to not just one, but two outside sites. There seems to be something malicious dwelling on the Tech Advisor site as I don't get it on any other site.

For an andriod tablet use this browser addblock browser

Nothing gets through and you don't have to switch off javascript.
